Mystic Numbers

Numbers have been the greatest discovery since mankind found fire. The reason is simple. Numbers don't just allow us to manage. They have profound implications.They depict our genetic dispositions. (or the karmic debt)

The original number 'zero' is the fundamental principle or 'silence' akin to 'A' of the English alphabet. This is bliss. (Isaih : 'Be still and know that Iam God')

The act of creation as stated in the Book of Genesis is : 'And God said let there be light. And there was light' This was the first number '1'. In Hindu mythology the birth of 'Brahma' or the Sun Principle (proverbially speaking). We regard Brahma or the Sun as the father of all creations.

A unary number by itself can get very lonely. Hence, there was a need for a companion. This is akin to the biblical creation of woman from the man. Or the number '2'. This is the moon principle. Note that we always refer to the Moon as mother.

The number '3' was born out of the wedlock. This is ruled by Jupiter. It denotes idealism and self-sacrifice at its best.

And thus got created all the numbers till 9. After this, all numbers add up to a number between 1 and 9. Now excluding zero we have nine numbers. There are nine planets in the solar system. There are nine orifices in the body of a man. This last number ('9') ruled by Mars stands for unlimited energy of the ego that leads to destruction. It is said that the spate of wars that the Earth has witnessed have always been when Mars was in proximity to the Earth.(in conjunction).

The numbers all have a ruler assigned to them. For instance the number '6' is ruled by Venus, the godess of love and beauty. She has the power to contain the debilitating effects of Mars.

Special mention needs to be made of number '7' ruled by Neptune, the lord of the Seas. This also denotes the positIve side of Lord Indra. People whose birth number adds up to seven are a priveleged class. They have a higher chance of spiritual realization than others. Why this preferential category ? Well, the reason is the same as why Blood Group 'O' people are called universal donors.

The cosmic cycle of births and rebirths are dictated by Newtons First Law (Every action has a equal and opposite reaction). In stock market parlance, it's like issuing preference shares. The odds are : Only it happens to 1 out of 9 people.

Did you ever wonder why there are seven notes in music ? Or the fact that light also consists of seven colors. ? This is too much of a co-incidence.

John Gray in his book 'Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus' forgot to see the implications of this , numeroligically speaking. If this were true then Men ruled by '9' and Women ruled by '6' in any situation, would lead to the victory of the woman. (Add 9 + 6 = 15 = 1 + 5 = 6) This indeed is true. Because love ('6') will always prevail over ego('9'). We refer to Earth or Gaia as mother, the most beautiful creation that the world has seen. And her beauty lies in the fact that she loves our principled Father just for the reason that he is truth personified, the light that shines in every eyes and is the source of abundant strength.

Folklore says that after death our soul passes to the Moon first, if qualified, passes on to the Sun, and finally gets merged with the Super Soul. Also there is mention of the fact that if we die during the KrishnaPaksh (waning period of the moon) rebirth is guaranteed.
Ditto during the 6 months that the Sun travels south.

May he guide us all towards salvation !!!
